Castleton Crackers Debuts Colorful and Compact New Packaging

November 21, 2016

Bright new packaging and pairing suggestions are receiving "Rave reviews", says founder, Whitney Lamy.

November 2016; South Woodstock, VermontVermont Farmstead Cheese Company (VFCC) and artisan cracker division Castleton Crackers, is proud to introduce newly-designed box packaging for the entire line of Castleton Crackers in more vibrant colors and compact size while retaining its artisan look.
 
Castleton Crackers flavors have been re-named to help clarify flavors and feature pairing suggestions on the back of the box. "The line includes a NEW version of our maple cracker, SALTED MAPLE, which is receiving rave reviews", says founder, Whitney Lamy
 
The new packaging design updates the Castleton Cracker’s signature kraft box with more color and information, while still keeping the see-through window.  Better fitting tray cradles crackers more effectively for less breakage and the compact size allows for easier stocking at retail and are perfect for Holiday Gift Baskets.  “Changing our packaging to a bolder color coded box makes us much more attractive to retailers.  “More vibrant, sturdy packaging gives the retailer more display opportunities and the consumer a beautiful artisan box design”, says Whitney.
